Event description

Description

A Magnolia Pictures release, The Square, a film by Ruben Östlund, is a gripping sociological suspense story that dives into the ethics of moral responsibility, privilege, and media sensationalism. Christian is the respected curator of a contemporary art museum, a divorced but devoted father of two, who drives an electric car and supports good causes. His next exhibition “The Square” is an installation that invites passersby to do altruistic deeds, reminding them of their role as responsible human beings. But sometimes it’s difficult to live up to your own ideas: When Christian’s phone is stolen, his foolish response drags him into an embarrassing situation. And when the museum’s PR agency creates an unexpected campaign for “The Square,” the overblown reaction from the public sends Christian, as well as the museum, into an existential crisis.


Join us afterward for a presentation by the director, Ruben Östlund, who will be conducting a Q&A on the film. Thanks to Magnolia Pictures and The Consulate General of Sweden in New York for making this screening possible.

The Square has received numerous distinctions since its premiere, as the Palme D’Or Winner at the Cannes Film Festival, 2017, and this year’s Swedish Foreign Language Film candidate for the 2018 Oscars. It has also been featured at the Toronto International Film Festival, 2017; Fantastic Fest, 2017; and New York Film Festival, 2017.
